Fantasy Trivia Time

One of my favorite characters in fantasy novels is R.A. Salvatore's Dark Elf, Drizzt Do'urden.  I have read all but the very latest book concerning this fascinating character, but early on Drizzt's life, he nearly died.  In the City of Menzobarranzen, the Drow matriarchal society is brutal and absolute.  Males are the underlings and viewed with scorn, especially by the priestesses of Lolth.  In the opening chapters of the book Homeland, Drizzt is a mere baby and his older brother, Dinin, saves his life.  How did it happen?

  1. He murders the eldest brother Nalfein just as Drizzt was born, sparing Drizzt who would have been sacrificed for being the third living male in the house.
